Nintendo UK has confirmed that it is bringing its popular Nintendo Unleashed tour to the forthcoming MCM London Comic Con, which is due to take place from 24th to the 26th May at the ExCel London.
The largest comic and pop culture show in the UK, the MCM Comic Con will play host to a dedicated "Unleashed" stand, which will be packed with new and upcoming Nintendo titles. Interestingly, one of those games will be 3D Space Harrier, which has been available in Japan for some time and still hasn't been given a western release date — presumably its presence at the show means a launch is happening soon. Also on show are Project X Zone, Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
Here's the official PR:
The Nintendo Unleashed tour will be kicking off at the 2013 MCM London Comic Con which is taking place from the 24th – 26th May 2013 at the ExCel London. As part of MCM London Comic Con, the largest Comic Con pop culture event and Memorabilia Collectors show in the UK, gaming fans will be able to try some of the latest Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games at the dedicated Unleashed stand.
With many new titles launching this year for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, the Unleashed tour will be the best place to get a first look and hands on time with exclusive first and third party games. Titles on show at the Nintendo Unleashed stand at MCM London Comic Con include:
- Game & Wario
- RESIDENT EVIL™ REVELATIONS
- Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut
- Rayman Legends

Those who visit the Unleashed stand will not only be able to play demos of new and recently released Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games but also get tips, tricks and advice from the expert staff. There will also be plenty of multiplayer activity available at the stand: whether you fancy forming a hunting party in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, capturing ghosts in Luigi’s Mansion 2 or testing your driving skills in Mario Kart 7.
If you already own a Nintendo 3DS then make sure you bring your console along to the Unleashed tour as you will not only be able to increase your StreetPass hits and help complete your accomplishments but also swap Friend Codes with other Nintendo fans so that you can compete with them in online multiplayer events when you get home.
We'll be reporting from the show floor and hopefully getting some hands-on time with some new games. Are you planning to attend this event? Tell us by posting a comment.
